Electricity is now considered an essential need.
We can’t do our daily tasks if we are without a power supply.
Even before the pandemic started, we rely on electricity for our business, entertainment, and even communication needs.
The need for a reliable power supply became more evident as we transitioned to the new normal.
With many of us now working from home, we need power for our virtual events and meetings, online classes, and wired transactions among others.
And we feel very inconvenienced and helpless in the event of a power outage.
But there is always something that we can do to prevent unscheduled power outages.
We are sharing with you some tips from the National Grid Corporation of the Philippines on how to prevent power interruptions, electrocutions, and other related accidents.
1. Do not fly kites near transmission lines
Kite-flying near transmission lines, as well as climbing electric poles, may cause accidents and electrocution.
2. Do not play near transmission lines
Do not use insulators or any part of the transmission line or tower as a target for the games that you are playing.
3. Be careful while carrying long materials
Refrain from carrying items or objects that may come in contact with the power transmission lines.
4. Choose where you build your home
Building a home close to transmission lines is very risky.
